UN sees East Congo as worse crisis than Darfur

What is going on in Africa? First, Rwanda, then Darfur, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Are our African brothers gone mad or what? Is it something in the water, the food, that are making people nuts?

U.N. emergency relief coordinator Jan Egeland said that over the last six years the toll in the Democratic Republic of Congo's amounted to "one tsunami every six months" -- a reference to the December disaster which left about 300,000 people dead or missing in Asia.

Can you believe the government in Khartoum is also persecuting women who were raped and now pregnant for violating Islamic Sharia Laws against sexual relations outside marriage? Talking about evil gone unchecked. This is another reason why I don't like Islam. You are constantly bombarded with very stupid and evil acts committed against women by men. Today, Islam seems like it's the single most horrific thing that could ever happen to a woman. I submit this question, based upon all the evil things that are happening in the name of Allah, is it really a legitimate religion? What about the alleged benevolence of this G_d? Does it exist? If it does, where is this proof?

Another point about the brutality under this Islamic control region - militiamen fighting in north-east Congo grilled bodies on a spit and boiled two girls alive as their mother watched, UN peacekeepers claimed today.

This brutality of women is not unique to African Muslims, women are also being killed and brutalized in Arabic countries as well. What the hell is wrong with this religion?
